Mysimba is a prescription weight-loss treatment. Each tablet contains 8 milligrams of naltrexone hydrochloride and 90 milligrams of bupropion hydrochloride.
It is available for those over the age of 18 who have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more. Alternatively, if you have a BMI of 27 to 30 and suffer from weight-related ailments, like high cholesterol or diabetes, you can be prescribed Mysimba.
Please note, this medication should be taken with a reduced-calorie diet and regular exercise regime.
The active ingredients of Mysimba (bupropion and naltrexone) work by altering the way the brain interprets hunger. Their combined effect reduces hunger pains and food cravings, helping you to stick with a low-calorie diet for longer.
If you are unsure if your diet is healthy, and do not know what exercise is appropriate for you to do, please speak with a doctor or health professional - they will be able to advise what is best.
It is also important to note, not all weight gain is a result of increased appetite. Psychological factors, such as anxiety and stress, can also play a part. For this reason, you should consult with your doctor before starting this medication - to determine the cause of your obesity.
Full instructions of how to take this medication will be detailed in the patient information leaflet. This will be sent with your order and is also available to view on the right of this page.
